Overview

The second edition of Mesoscale Meteorological Modeling provides an update of the field of mesoscale atmospheric modeling. The topic of mesoscale modeling is developed from basic concepts in atmospheric physics.


New numerical and analytical tools are introduced. Problem sets are provided to test the comprehension of the material introduced in the text. The appendix provides summaries as of early 2001 of the framework and applications of a suite of mesoscale models.


To effectively utilize mesoscale dynamical simulations of the atmosphere, it is necessary to have an understanding of the basic physical and mathematical foundations of the models and to have an appreciation of how a particular atmospheric system works. Mesoscale Meteorological Modeling provides such an overview of mesoscale numerical modeling.
